Tatsiana Novikava, coordinator of a campaign against the construction of a nuclear power plant, and Russian physicist Andrey Ozharovsky were sentenced yesterday evening to 5 and 10 days of administrative arrest respectively, after Minsk Leninski District Court found them guilty of disorderly conduct.

The campaigners were detained yesterday afternoon and charged with using foul language in public.

Tatsiana Novikava’s associates say she has to take special medicines and fear that the prison conditions may ruin her health.
